Day 137

Affirmation:

I only make choices that are beneficial to my life and support my well-being.

I only make choices that support my growth into a  more empowered and more authentic, loving human.


It is easy to get into the habit of making choices that do not serve one’s life or self.   That may be the habit of choosing an unhealthy relationship, choosing to be in situations which promote victimhood, or choosing to worry (which offers nothing positive to any experience).   Consciously choosing that which is physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy is always the right choice, for both the self and others.  Choosing to nourish the body with the healthiest possible food is choosing well-being.  Choosing to end or avoid engaging in toxic situations is choosing to support one’s growth.  Choosing to view oneself as worthy and valuable is choosing empowerment.  Choosing to feel compassion, tolerance, understanding and acceptance is choosing authenticity.   Choosing to have a positive attitude and positive thoughts is choosing to be a more positive, loving person.   Being conscious of what one is choosing – and whether or not the consequences of those choices  support well-being – is an important part of living a joyful, healthy, authentic life of love and truth.

Day 106

Affirmation:

I am still.

I am present.

I am free of internal clutter.

I am still.

I am present.

I am free of internal congestion.

I am still.

I am present.

I am free.


As important as having simplicity in our personal spaces can be, transformative even, having it within ourselves is crucial. Simplifying one’s inner world is about finding stillness in the mind by eliminating the mental clutter, the extraneous thoughts that fill our waking lives with incessant chatter.  Meditation and yoga are helpful, losing oneself in a meditative act like painting or listening to music can also help quiet the mind.  Simplifying the inner world means pausing to be physically and mentally present in the moment.  It means physically leaving one location (like work) and taking our whole self (thoughts included) with us, not being mentally other than where our body is.  It means not living in yesterday nor worrying about tomorrow.  It means refusing to engage in the drama of others’ lives or allowing it to be part of ours. That may mean not tuning in to the news every day. It might mean choosing to watch television shows that promote well-being and inner peace instead of those that promote tension and discord. Simplifying the inner world means letting go of emotions and beliefs that don’t serve one’s life and well-being.  It means opening the closet of the heart and getting rid of what no longer fits, what never belonged to us in the first place, and what was given to us that we don’t want.  Simplifying internally means getting back to the basics of who we are and what we’re about.  It’s about finding that place within where love and hope and faith and happiness and peace have permanent residence.  It means embracing our feelings without judging ourselves for having them.  It means letting joy be joy and sorrow be sorrow.  Simplifying the inner world is about creating a quieter mind, an engaged sense of being, and a peaceful heart.

Day 55

Affirmation:

I consciously create the legacy I wish to leave.

I act in harmony with how I wish to one day be remembered.


How we remember someone when they leave this world is largely the result of how they lived.   We are remembered  for our words and our  deeds.   It is not the selfish, intolerant and cruel who are remembered as heroes, saints and humanitarians.  While no one should live their life worrying about what others think, it can be a nice wake up call to stop and ask, “What do I want to be remembered for when my time here is done?”   If the answers are in harmony with how we’re now living, then who we are and how we want to be thought of are aligned.   If they are not, it’s never too late to begin living the legacy we desire to leave.  It’s not too hard either.  To be remembered as a gentle warrior for love, gently love.  To be remembered as a shooting star, work toward your dreams.  To be remembered as authentic, be yourself.

Day 54

Affirmation:

I live true to myself.

I listen openly to the ideas of others but decide for myself.

I live my own original life.


Sometimes we fall like blind sheep over the ledge and into the pit of cultural should’s and shouldn’ts, acceptables and unacceptables, such that what others think becomes a genuinely unconscious factor in our decision making. Whether it’s about which music is cool to listen to or which clothes are in style, or something vastly more important like which path to follow or who to love, we must be consciously aware of what influences play into our choices and decisions.  Living authentically means living true to one’s own beliefs, opinions and ideas, even if that means being unsupported.

Day 164

Affirmation:

My actions are in harmony with my intentions and motivations.

I have no hidden agenda; I live with honesty and integrity.

I say what I mean and I mean what I say.

My words and actions are authentic.

                                      ______________________

Living a spiritually attuned life requires authenticity, the sort of authenticity expressed as motivations that are in harmony with actions.  Living authentically means being free of any hidden agendas in interactions with others or the world.   Instead of being nice to the boss in order to get a promotion, the person living authentically is nice to the boss because they are being nice.   Someone living authentically will not have an ulterior motive.  They give for the sake of giving.  They do for the sake of doing.  They ask because they are interested.  They help because they wish to help.  They love for the sake of loving.
